No matter what size your business is, time tracking is always a good idea. Without time tracking software, it's easy for your employees to get lost in projects and hard to follow their efficiency and productivity. Below are more reasons why it’s worth considering implementing a time tracking software for your business:
Track Work Efficiently
Time tracking software can create time sheets, which makes it easier to understand your company's workflow. Moreover, you can do without the punch-in/punch-out process and other old-fashioned attendance systems, which make time tracking process more complicated and less convenient both for you and your employees.
Improved Client Billing
When you're billing your clients hourly, time tracking becomes an important part of your successful relationships. Without a proper time tracking software, your customers won't get quick and accurate bills, which will affect not only your relationships with the customer but the credibility of your business in general.
Increased Employee Satisfaction
Time tracking software makes a huge difference for your employees. Time tracking software gives them clear perspective on their tasks, which helps them to organize their time, prioritize their efforts and stay effective during the work hours. These relieve pressure from managers as they don't need to follow every step of their team, which is also a good for the employees, as they feel less stressed.

More than a software for tracking vacation time or employee hours, an encompassing time and expense system such as Moniroo should prove to be a trusty guide in helping to determine employee efficiency, project budget, internal cost and time off scheduling. A reliable time and expense software should also give staff a real-time visibility of all time and expense data.
Here are top 3 reasons why it’s worth investing in a time and expense system:
1. Track Project Cost and Budget
Apart from determining a project’s budget in the initial planning stages, ensuring that the costs are in-line every step of the way is a must. Tracking progress, time spent on specific projects and determining available resources allows a project manager to identify issues as they happen and make corrections (allotting more or less time depending on the tasks accomplished).
A time and expense management system also keeps a record of tracked projects allowing for better budget and time estimates in the future having the records as reference.
2. Employee Efficiency
Tracking the amount of work for each employee gives an overarching view of employee efficiency. Keeping a log of the tasks and amount of time spent enables managers to evaluate and modify how long tasks are performed and properly allocate resources and responsibilities.
3. Eliminate Paper Trails
Instead of having to look back into numerous spreadsheets and varying systems as reference, a time and expense system should integrate financial data, provide reporting with analytics and dashboards and give an accurate view of expenses and data records. Eliminating paper trails decreases the possibility for processing errors. Incase an error does occur, chances are they can be easily visible through a single consolidated source of data with a time and expense system.

If you find your company is struggling with charging clients or justifying costs internally, it’s high time you considered a Professional Services Automation (PSA) solution.
A Professional Services Automation (PSA) allows you to:
- accurately record time and expenses
- effectively schedule the right resources
- ensure timely billing
- measure the financial performance of both your projects and employees
Before diving deep into searching for the best PSA solution out in the market, you need to take into account the following:
Business needs – You have to decide which processes are the most critical for your organization and have to be automated. There are a lot of solutions that promise they do wonders for your business, but they might be missing the specific options you need.
Scalability – Will the software grow with you? You need to select a flexible PSA solution and make sure that you can update features, add new users or remove existing ones.
Team Decision – Gather all the people in your organization that are going to be involved in the implementation process. This will make it easier for you once you’ll have to get all users onboard to use the PSA solution.

Despite the weather conditions this week, summer is approaching its peak and while employees are taking their vacation leave time, many organizations find it difficult to capture time off. Managers are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of accrued vacation leave records and they also need to ensure that time is reported accurately in accordance with the respected policies regarding vacation leave.
So what if employees could request time-off via the internet and managers could approve these requests and view their department’s work schedules online? It is obvious that a time tracking software reduces the time required versus manual options and the savings accelerate quickly. Additionally, the costs of archiving paper documents will vanish.
